Yes, you need a driver so that your operating system understands how to interface to your camera. Canon Europe has a handy web page:

http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010192.asp

Enter your operating system and language, and you will get the choices of things that can be downloaded relevant to your camera. If you were using Windows Vista, for example, your choice would be "Canon Camera USB WIA Driver for Windows Vista". Install that, reboot, and then connect your camera again. It should be recognized by your computer.

Bought cannon rebel xt 350d used and it did not come with disc. how do i know what to install so i can download my pics?


You don't need any special software.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery.

My canon rebel xt digital camera stopped working when I try to download my pictures. I keep getting an error message that says "cameralauncher.exe has stopped working." I uninstalled and...


If you haven't got this working yet let me offer a few suggestions.
It may be that the computer you are using has gone through an auto update or you have changed software. The Rebel XT is old enough that the camera firmware may not be compatible to the updated computer software. You may be able to update the camera firmware by going to the Canon site and download the updates they are free.

Or you can step around the camera by using a Memory Card reader. The reader is plugged into a USB port and the computer looks at it as an external Hard Drive or Mass Storage device.

You picture files can be downloaded to the computer Hard Drive and then the memory card needs to be "ejected" don't just pull it out the computer doesn't like it.

Once the memory card is placed back in the camera the memory card needs to be formatted and you are good to go again.

My PC will recognize my Canon Rebel XT, but it will not download the pictures. What do I need to do to get my pictures downloaded?


First of all....use a usb card reader...rather than downloading directly from the camera. I believe you use a cf card in your canon. Using the reader simply insert the card into the reader.....and download it to whatever file (and location on your pc) name you want. then bring up the image in whatever photo editing software you use. I use photoshop....but you necessarily need that program. many people use photoshop le, etc. hope that helps.

Computer won't recognize it


Try using a separate card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

No Rebel XT driver for Vista


Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

Can't download pictures from my camera


CLICK HERE
To take you to the download page for the XT on canon's website.
You have to choose the operating system you are using (since it wasnt stated in the question.
There are other downloads on this page as well.

The actual camera manual is hidden in the "Guides and manuals" section.

I put in XP as the OS, and it appeared 3rd from the bottom in that section.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Download pictures from my Rebel EOS to my computer


Take a look at Picasa, from Google. Also take a look at Irfanview. I haven't used Irfanview in over a year (since I moved from a PC to a Mac - it's the one piece of software I really miss on my Mac), but before I moved to the Mac it was my primary photo organizer and viewer. It's a very impressive program for free software from an individual programmer (Irfan).
